Investors in Mojahedin Khalq on the verge of collapse
The new permanent representative of Iran to the United Nations has dismissed the Washington Post report on Iran’s peaceful nuclear program as ‘baseless’ and ‘fictitious.’
Gholamali Khoshroo made the remarks in a statement released on Wednesday, adding “it is very much lamentable that the Washington Post has covered the false and repetitive allegations of this terrorist group whose inhumane nature has been revealed to everyone, especially to the American public opinions.”
Khoshroo was referring to the anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) who had claimed in a report published on the Washington Post website on Feb. 24 that Iran’s government was conducting secret research with the aim of developing nuclear weapons.
The terrorist group had fled from Iran to Iraq in 1986, where it enjoyed the support of Iraq’s executed dictator, Saddam Hussein, and set up its camp near the Iranian border.
The MKO has since carried out numerous acts of violence against Iranian civilians and government officials.
“The radical and extremist groups which see their hefty investments on securitizing Iran’s peaceful nuclear program on the verge of collapse and are witnessing the growing isolation of Iranophobic policies due to the Islamic Republic’s logical approach to international developments, attempt to spread lies and launch black propaganda against the completely peaceful nuclear program of Iran,” he said in the statement.
“Just as it has been asserted in the IAEA’s various reports, the cooperation between Iran and the IAEA is proceeding on a proper level and Iran is committed to its obligations and responsibilities within the framework of NPT. In turn, the Islamic Republic expects the other sides to stay clear of any sensationalization attempted by the radical groups and keep committed to their own obligations toward Iran’s nuclear rights,” the statement concluded.
